I saw one of these beautiful animals up at a hut outside of Aspen yesterday.
Thanks. They are amazing to watch. We saw them several times in the Kawuneeche Valley over our two days there. In fact, I think there's a stretch of the Colorado River below Shadow Mountain Lake that's closed to hikers during the winter due to eagle nesting.
Wow, that is great luck to see those birds so close. I have not had the chance, yet. Thank you so much for posting!
Thanks! I did get lucky this time. All my other attempted photos of bald eagles capture their backside off in the distance as they're flying away.
Absolutely stunning collection of pics, John!
What can I say...congrats and thanks for sharing!
All the best from Dublin
Just happen to be at the right place at the right time. Wish I had a camera with me for the many encounters I've had trail running in the mountains...
..I can't say more! saludos jane.
Thanks! It's always a special treat to see an eagle in the backcountry.
